Toontrack announced the immediate release of the Pop/Rock EZX expansion. The audio and MIDI content is derived from the original version EZdrummer, but now converted into an expansion for EZdrummer 2. The sound and MIDI groove library from the original EZdrummer has been a staple in the creative toolboxes of top songwriters and heard daily in countless major label productions, TV shows and commercials ever since it was first released in 2006.
The Pop/Rock EZX is based around a classic GMS kit including several options for snares, bass drums and cymbals. The sounds were recorded in New York's legendary Avatar Studios by engineer duo Neil Dorfsman (Bruce Springsteen, Dire Straits) and Pat Thrall (Beyoncé, Katy Perry) together with renowned session drummer Nir Z (Chris Cornell, Genesis). Avatar Studios is known for having one of the world's finest acoustic environments and has won several industry awards. Since its inception in the 1970s, it has hosted bands and artists like Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Journey, Kings of Leon and The Clash.

About EZdrummer, EZdrummer 2 and the EZdrummer Line
EZdrummer was launched in 2006 and quickly established itself as the number one drum production tool for top-tier producers, songwriters and home users alike. In May 2014, it was replaced by EZdrummer 2 – a complete overhaul of the program, introducing groundbreaking functionality, new sounds and a streamlined workflow for quick and easy songwriting. Only a month after release, it has received several awards, been featured on the cover of prestigious magazines and met by a unanimous positive response from users.
The ever-growing selection of EZX expansions encompasses 21 unique libraries recorded in top studios all over the world, making the EZdrummer Line possibly the single largest, most diverse collection of drum sounds on the market.
